              Alice Achan was only twelve years old when the Lord's Resistance Army began to terrorise her peaceful village in northern Uganda. She spent five years on the run from the brutalities of the LRA, and then became the caretaker of her brother's young children after their mother died... of HIV/Aids. When her nieces were diagnosed with HIV/Aids Alice knew it was only a matter of time until it killed them, but she looked after them until the end. Their deaths plunged her into depression, which only began to lift after she took a teenage girl under her wing, who'd been kidnapped and raped by the LRA, and now had a baby by her rapists. Spurred on by her friend's plight, Alice established an organisation called CCF Pader to house and nurture young female victims of the sexual violence that was such a brutal trademark of the LRA's campaign. Out of this was to rise The Pader Girl's Academy - nicknamed 'the School of Restoration'. It has now helped hundreds of young girls, many of whom were left with babies and often HIV as a consequence of their rape and sexual enslavement. These were girls, women and children that no one wanted, yet whose humanity and potential Alice recognised. The School of Restoration teaches them skills to help them find work, educates them in the care and rearing of healthy children, and above all gives them back their identity and dignity. It is a profound and meaningful response to the outrage of sexual violence used as a weapon of war, and a beacon of light in the broader campaign of educating girls as a means of fighting poverty and raising living standards across Africa. Written in Alice's powerful yet understated voice, The School of Restoration is a compelling story about hope, forgiveness, redemption, and the human capacity to survive and even thrive against the backdrop of war and chaos.

              Alice Achan was just thirteen when the Lord's Resistance Army first terrorised her village in northern Uganda in 1987. She spent five years on the run from the brutal LRA, and then cared for her young nieces after their mother died of AIDs, losing them one by one to the disease. ...Their deaths plunged her into depression, which only began to lift after she took in an unexpected guest: a pregnant teenage girl, kidnapped and assaulted by the LRA, who had escaped captivity with her toddler. Spurred on by her young friend's plight, Alice began to house and nurture survivors of the sexual violence that was a trademark of the LRA's twenty-year campaign. Out of this rose the Pader Girls Academy, which Alice saw as a 'School of Restoration'. It has helped hundreds of girls, many left with babies and HIV as a result of their enslavement. Alice recognised the humanity and potential in these girl mothers, who had been rejected or were trapped in their villages without hope.
